A colleague had told me about The Pheasant before our holiday to the Lakes. I had forgotten, but we were coming down the A66 from Cockermouth and it was well sign posted. We dropped in and had the most sumptuous creme tea,with rum creme ! The staff were very pleasant so we came back for dinner on our final evening.... More

Having been to the Pheasant many times before we knew that our friends who we're visiting from London would not be disappointed by our recommendation to eat there and sure enough they enjoyed every moment. We booked a table in the restaurant part of the Inn for 8pm and got the table on the dot but would not have been... More

Our "Local" friends took us here and had made reservations well in advance as it is very popular with the locals. The menu was really interesting and seemed well balanced. I had the Trout and was nervous after years of being disappointed. It seems that the best trout is always in Northern England! It was delicious, no hint of fishiness... More

A very professional food operation at the Pheasant, a little way out of the centre of Keswick, but only about 10 minutes walk through Fitz Park. It is very popular, so booking is essential. They do take chance diners, but you are likely to have to wait. On offer is hearty Lakeland food, always good in our experience, and pleasant... More

We arrived at 1830 on Thursday after a walk to a few places. We thought we would just enjoy a drink of good ale but the menu was very good. We ordered as we had a table. By 1900 the place was getting busy but you can either book in advance or chance a table around the bar. The food... More

Arrived here about 7pm so it was busy. We found a table for two, sat down and the server came over and told us to move as the table was reserved. There was no sign on it, we moved not wishing to protest and she then put a sign up. Got another table and ordered then waited and waited. Food... More

I live just outside of Keswick and eat regularly at The pheasant Inn. The food has always been superb & you are always sure of a warm welcome & good banter from friendly and helpful staff. I love the camembert starter...good to share as portions are generous! I tend to drink wine of which there is a good choice on... More

I have eaten here on every visit I have taken to Keswick, and the quality of food has been very good every time. It is a very good character pub with a good selection of ales, wines and food, just what you need after a days walking in the fells.

Okay phenomenal may be overstating a little but I like a bit of alliteration! My sister and I enjoyed a delicious meal at the Pheasant. I loved the gooey Camembert with plenty of dipping sticks to enjoy it all and main of beef and Cumberland Ale pie was yummy with fab homemade chips. I chose the lemon posset for dessert... More
